GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

The doors open on your left as you face the front of the train. Go to the rear of the train to locate the exit. There are two pillars in the middle of the platform, in front of the exit. Turn right and follow the passage round to your right. Go up one flight of stairs, which curves right, turn right again and go up another flight of steps to concourse level. Take the turning right into the concourse.

On reaching the concourse, the main gate line is in front of you with the exits towards the left-hand end. The manual gate is to your right and the south gate line is to your left.

For the south exit, turn left, down four steps and go through the gates, the right-hand gate is normally the one you need. Beyond the gates, the wall juts out from each side and you continue along the passage, which veers left before you reach the foot of the stairs. Turn left, go up a flight of steps, turn left and go up another flight then turn left again. Go up a flight of steps and continue forward, moving slightly left to locate the exit onto the east side of Gower Street.

For the north exit, go through the gates, if you find a rail in front of you, move to your left, to the end and come back on the other side. Continue to the end of the passage, turn right and continue to the stairs. Go up one flight of stairs, turn right and go up another flight onto the north side of Euston Road. You are about 30 metres from the junction with North Gower Street.
